Did updating the forums to counter spam take out support for <small>? RRS feed

  • Yes, we've removed some html tags to prevent css overrides for Forum threads (now shown as actual text). This has been a challenge since there's are multiple rules to exlude and include however, this prevents spammers to hijack the page (page redirection to a spam site)

    Thanks.

  • Hmm.. figured that... Thanks for the info.

    Wonder how spammers use the <small> tag for CSS overriding? Thought all that did was make the text smaller?
